Gersfeld, Germany by AG88 Gersfeld, Germany by AG88
For two years I lived in a tiny town in Germany called Gersfeld. It was near the Wildflecken, Army Post.

One day while mountain biking I came upon an old abandoned castle. There was nobody around. In American a structure that was hundreds and hundreds of years old would be protected, but this little outpost was just sitting along the bike trail.

I think it was then that I realized how much history this country had. These little castles were probably a dime-a-dozen.

Nice photo, you did a good job with it. :D

Yeah I know what you mean, many castles here in germany and I think that counts for most of europe, aren't that protected. Most of the old ruins that you can find all over the country didn't have a fence around ore something else. I guess it comes witht the history and that we have a lot of those old buildings here. And I really would like to have one of those too...

Thanks. I love the trail maps of Germany. I used use them to mountain bike or hike and I always came upon some really great building or castle. There is so much history in Europe.

Thank you. I was just shocked that it didn't have a big fence around it and a concession stand.
